Course summary

The Finance and Real Estate MSc is focused on the real needs of business and will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to succeed in this competitive sector. With two leading industry qualifications built-in, this course is your foundation in the highest standards of the real estate world.

This programme bridges the gap between undergraduate studies and employment – combining the study of two complementary subject areas with leading industry accreditation and professional training to ensure you are industry-ready. The course is designed to extend your capabilities in all financial aspects of real estate and property development with a particular focus on international real estate markets and commercial property valuation and investment.

This programme holds accreditation from Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which allows graduates to go on to the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence. It also runs in parallel with the globally recognised qualification CFA Level 1, so you’ll have the opportunity to complete this leading professional qualification too. Not only that, the Investment Property Forum has included this programme on its selected list of graduate programmes that they consider to provide the relevant skills necessary for those operating in the property investment market. Finally, the Business School is also home to the internationally recognised Centre for Real Estate Research, which acts as a focus for interdisciplinary research in the area of Real Estate Investment and Property Market Analysis.

This course provides a credible platform for both finance and real estate career options – preparing your for rewarding posts in real estate finance or real estate portfolio management. Our graduates are employed in a wide range of professional organisations across real estate, finance, consultancy, research and the public sector.
